As part of our Wessex Museums Interpretation Strategy, heritage consultants Iona Eastman and Maria Blyzinsky devised an exhibition proposal template.
The aim of the template is for us to adopt a formal and consistent process for generating, evaluating and developing ideas for exhibitions across the museum partnership.
Males great bustards perform spectacular courtship displays, gathering at a ‘lek’ or small display ground to try to impress the females.
The great bustard has a dignified slow walk but tends to run when disturbed, rather than fly.
The hen-bird on display at The Salisbury Museum was one of the last great bustards to be eaten in the town!
